From Chris Terlop of WDUZ radio in Green Bay who works with Chris Havel:
Per our Chris Havel, according to a source, LB Nick Perry has a broken foot, We will be back later this year. #Packers

Perry got hurt sacking and forcing a fumble on Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco on Sunday that led to a Packers’ field goal as time expired before halftime.
According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Perry sprained his ankle on the play. He later returned for five plays in the second half.
Perry’s injury seems to be coming at the worst possible time, with fellow outside linebacker Clay Matthews also expected to miss several weeks while recovering from thumb injury.
The second-year linebacker appeared to be coming into his own, notching three sacks in past two games.
Whether Perry is a candidate for short-term injured reserve remains to be seen.
Head coach Mike McCarthy will address the media with a 3:00 p.m. press conference and should provide an update even if he doesn’t have all the details yet.
